You don’t see a crime committed with a crossbow every day.

Shopkeeper Mohammed Razaq had just loaded a DVD for his five children when a man with a crossbow tried to rob the store.


Security footage shows he appeared to shoot at Razaq, but he either missed or did not have the crossbow properly loaded. Razaq chased the would-be thief out the door with a pole he uses for changing the store’s sign. Razaq feared for his family.

He said: “He tried to load up the crossbow and I could see a big window pole in front of me, so I grabbed the stick and chased him.

“I felt he was threatening me and my family and kids, so I just had to do it.

“As soon as he saw me with the stick, he ran like mad. I tried to hit him, but I think I missed.”
